Partners Conference - Zimbali
14 Nov 2017
The National Partners of PKF (SA) held their annual conference from 02nd to the 05th November 2017 at Zimbali Lodge on the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal.
There were two new offices in attendance being Pretoria and PKF Octagon (Johannesburg). This was the largest conference held for some time with 65 delegates in attendance.
The guest speaker was Mr. Ian Ferreira a former (Captain) detective from the SAPS who specialises in nonverbal behaviour and deceptive behaviour during interviews or meetings. He gave the partners some excellent tips on reading people’s behaviour.
The object of the conference is to network and discuss strategies and objectives within the 9 offices. The overall feedback given by Kevin Gertenbach and Butch Abbott is that the network is growing at an extremely good rate which positions the firm as the eighth largest audit and accounting network in South Africa. The reinstatement of a Johannesburg office means that the firm is now represented in every major economic centre in South Africa, and are in a position to attract staff and clients alike with the new regulatory environment charge.
The conference finished off with Golf and activities on Saturday afternoon and a Gala dinner in the evening. A good time was had by all.
